Strengths-based Interview

elicit less rehearsed responses and encourage authenticity

What is it?

Designed around the strengths required within an organisation and role, the Strengths-based Interview offers a different interview experience. It allows you to assess capability and energy in a fast-paced and less ambiguous manner, encouraging authentic responses and allowing better differentiation between low, average, and high performers.

How does it work?

For each organisation a range of bespoke questions will be developed to enable testing of individual strengths. Using our unique Capp Strengths matrix – a simple and intuitive scoring methodology – assessors will be able to elicit less rehearsed responses from candidates compared to the traditional competency approach. Full training is provided to equip assessors with an understanding of strengths and the scoring matrix.

When should I use it?

The Strengths-based Interview is used in a full range of industry sectors and all organisation levels with enormous success. This is due to the approach we take to design and implementation.
